The victim, Prashant Kasana (27), a native of Kasana area of Gautam Buddh Nagar district, lives in Alpha 1 sector of Greater Noida, officials said.

A private security guard who witnessed the accident said, "The car was coming at a high speed. It must have been around 120 kmph. Suddenly, the driver peeped his head out to spit gutkha/pan masala, and lost control over the vehicle, which rammed into the divider."

"I rushed to the spot and with the help of another passerby, who was in a Scorpio, and rushed him to a hospital," the guard, Mahaveer, said.

Kasana was first taken to Kailash Hospital and a hospital spokesperson told The Times of India that he was kept on ventilator since he had received a serious head injury and a fracture in the arm. Kasana's parents later shifted him to Apollo Hospital.

Apollo Hospital spokesperson was quoted as saying by Hindustan Times, "The victim was admitted to our hospital on Thursday night in a critical state. He was under constant observation and despite our best efforts, he breathed his last on Friday evening."

According to senior police officials, no complaint was registered in the case but a PCR had reached the spot for basic probe.
